Make for your next football party or for tailgating!! This beer is drinkable in three weeks + 1 day of high pressure forced carbing.

Not to mention is pretty damn cheap. $10-12 per 5 gal batch. The grain is small enough that 10 gal is pretty easy on most peoples set-up.

here's my version with rice in place of corn and all saaz hops. about 11 IBU worth. i will definitely use more next time. i think the saaz i got were only 3% AA, so it may have ended up below 10 IBU. my beer cranked from 1.040 to 1.002, putting it at about 4.9% ABV. it's a good beer, very similar to BMC, especially with the low IBU. i hope the next one separates itself a little from BMC. a slightly dryer budweiser with VERY little ester character from the safale us-05. great clarity, the clearest beer i've brewed to date. brewed it about 3 weeks ago. the dryness is definitely noticeable, i got a slightly 'dry tongue' from drinking a few pints... nothing terrible though. anyway, here is a pic:

it's getting better by the night. for some strange reason, the dryness was not as apparent tonight, no dry tongue, it was just a great session beer. perhaps because i did a bunch of yard and car work before schwilling a few, but i'll be damned if it wasn't the perfect quench after that kind of work. plus the carbonation is hitting it's stride.

Default Oh Yah!!


I know what you mean!! My last batch was 10 gallons. I drank about 7 all by my lonesome! This last weekend I killed at least 3 gallons.

I was doing yard work all through the holiday weekend. It was quite tasty being dry not to mention what I drank was all lemony with sorachi ace.

I'm glad you like it!!! That beer is super clear.

Its pretty damn cool to have something as quaffable as BMC with more flav ain't it?

My last keg of this blew yesterday afternoon.

Next time try to hit 16-18 IBUs, use software for the calcs. Contact me if you need help.

Here is a recipe calculator if you need it...The Beer Recipator 2.2

BTW - I serve this at 12 psi! It leaves lots of lace on the glass.

Did you late hop and dry hop in the same fashion with the Saaz? The late and dry hopping should make this beer stand out from any BMC-ish beer.

i did late hop but no dry hop, i will try that next time. like i said, the saaz i got were only 3% AA, so i think that lowered me down a bit and i've got beersmith, so i should be able to dial it in next time. i'll try the 12 psi, but all 4 of my kegs are on one reg, so i'll just have to adjust it for a few pours, no biggie. i'll definitely be brewing up another batch of this soon as i don't expect this keg to last long.

it might also be interesting to try this one with no 60minute addition, just a 20minute to the right ibu, then the 0 and dryhop

Brewed this for my 9/9/09 brew. Used Tet for bittering and Saaz for aroma. I've got another ounce of unknown ( I think they are cascade) hops for dry hopping. Thinking I may add a small amount of honey to the secondary. Bubbling away in the carboy today like mad.

Hit 1.040 for my OG.

Whatever you do try to hit 16-18IBUs using software.
